Warbirds-Motorsport Park Combo Proves a Hit

8.4.14
Combo Proves a Hit

The new Warbirds Over Wanaka-Highlands Motorsport Park combo ticket is proving a big hit with fans.

For the first time people can buy a ticket which gives them one day at Warbirds Over Wanaka International Airshow and one day at the brand new Festival of Speed event at Highlands this Easter. Ticketholders get to choose which day they visit which event.

Already more than 500 combo tickets have been sold and with ticket sales increasing every day that number is expected to grow considerably before sales of this ticket close at midnight on Monday, April 14th.

“We knew this product would appeal to people, but even we’ve been pleasantly surprised at how many we’ve sold, especially given it’s a new product,” said Warbirds General Manager Ed Taylor.

“It’s also pleasing to see the number of sales of these combo tickets outside the South Island. One of the reasons we did it was to give North Islanders and Australians even more reason to come to this region at Easter,” said Ed.

“We just want people to know that we have to close off this combo ticket next Monday night so anyone wanting to buy one needs to get onto it pronto.”

Highlands Motorsport Park Marketing Manager Melanie Kees believes there’s a perfect fit between the two events and that’s why people are buying the combo.

“Warbirds is all about classic aircraft and the Festival of Speed is all about celebrating the history of motor racing. We’ve based our event along the lines of the Goodwood Festival in the UK and believe it will continue to grow over the years.”

The combo ticket is being sold through Ticket Direct. The cost is $110 for the two-day ticket.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
